The "Friends" reunion is back on track. Filming for the highly-anticipated show will begin soon and this time it sounds as if executives have done everything in their power to ensure there are no further delays.
"It's happening," David Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller in the beloved sitcom, confirmed in an interview on SiriusXM's "Radio Andy" on Wednesday. Schwimmer explained that in "a little over a month" he would be setting off to Los Angeles, where the unscripted special will be taped.
"So, finally, I mean, we figured out a way to film it safely and there's going to be a portion of it that we filmed outside because of, you know, for safety protocols," he added.
The sitcom's entire original cast — Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and Schwimmer — will reunite for the "Friends" reunion show, which will be hosted by a guest that is still to be announced. There have been several names floating around, including Ellen DeGeneres, but Schwimmer shut down those rumors.
"I can tell you it's not Ellen, and it's not Billy Crystal," he said of hosting duties. "I can tell you who it's not, but that'll take a while, probably."
Filming for the reunion show was scheduled to take place in March 2020 but things were put on hold due to the coronavirus. Perry, who plays Chandler Bing in the sitcom, said last year via Twitter that the special was scheduled for March but there have been no further announcements.
